The Palestinian BDS National Committee, Palestinian civil society’s largest coalition, calls on people of conscience, unions, municipalities, political parties, social movements, student groups, academics, artists, churches and LGBTQI groups, around the world to:
Plan actions to intensify and amplify campaigns that are linked to the call to end military and security ties with Israel. For example, a protest against G4S, HP, or complicit banks (like AXA and HSBC) and companies with military ties, spreading campaigns to end partnerships with Israeli police, such as the Deadly Exchange campaign, etc. Include the hashtag #MilitaryEmbargo or #StopArmingIsrael
Demand a position and/or debate on a military embargo against Israel in your parliament: Pressure your political parties, elected representatives and government to end military ties with Israel.
Pass a motion to demand a military embargo against Israel at your city council, church, union or other civil society organizations. These motions are essential to popularize the demand for a military embargo on Israel, a demand which we can build in a sustained manner from the grassroots level.
Organize a protest to pressure your government: Mobilize protests to pressure your government to end military and security ties with Israel.
Write your local paper to express why you support a military embargo.

Please write to us with your action plans, questions and photos!
Two million Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip are showing incredible courage and determination to attain their rights. The #GreatReturnMarch continues despite Israel’s deliberate murder of more than 30 unarmed protesters and injuring of over 3,000. Palestinian journalists, children, women, youth and medical personnel have all been among those targeted.
Together, we can ensure they are not alone!
The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) is the largest coalition in Palestinian civil society. It leads and supports the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement for Palestinian rights.
